Drake hunts a stalker with deadly intentions. Hart fights for justice for one special victim while also fending off her ex and his family as they try to destroy everything she holds dear. 
Neither realizes the real danger lies with an old enemy whose fury has grown and will not be satisfied with anything less than Hart and Drake’s blood . . . 
Perfect for fans of Lisa Gardner, Tess Gerritsen, Iris Johansen, and Debra Webb.

    FBI BAU Special Agent Ruby Hunter remains haunted by “The 13 Killer,” the serial killer who took everything from her—including her partner—before she put him away for good. Yet somehow, though behind bars, new bodies are showing up with his trademark 13 signature. Is he behind it? Will Ruby, still shattered, return to the force to confront him again?
    “Molly Black has written a taut thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat… I absolutely loved this book and can’t wait to read the next book in the series!”

    IF I RUN is the debut novel in a new series by #1 bestselling mystery and suspense author Molly Black, whose books have received over 2,000 five-star reviews and ratings.
    FBI Special Agent Ruby Hunter wants nothing more than to put the 13 killer, and her days in the FBI, behind her, and to try to pick up the pieces of her life. But he refuses to rot quietly.
    Ruby realizes she must do the thing she dreads the most: visit him in prison. But he is diabolical and cunning, an expert at toying with his victims—and with her.
    Separating fact from fiction, his delusion from real-life clues, will be key for Ruby. With a new victim’s life on the line, and time running out—and Ruby herself in danger—the stakes could not be higher.
    But is Ruby walking right into his trap?
    A complex psychological crime thriller full of twists and turns and packed with heart-pounding suspense, the RUBY HUNTER mystery series will make you fall in love with a brilliant new female protagonist and keep you turning pages late into the night.

    A page-turning debut murder mystery, set in Byron Bay. 
    Jack Harris, the disgraced son of Australia's most powerful business tycoon, has just been exiled to Byron Bay as a junior journalist at his father's smallest regional newspaper, The Beacon. His arrival coincides with the disappearance of the newspaper's editor, Patrick O'Shaughnessy, while out on his morning surf. When Patrick's body is discovered in the ocean, with a severed leg, it appears certain that he's fallen victim to a shark attack. 
    But when rumours emerge that Patrick was about to publish an explosive article – its subject unknown – Jack begins to suspect his death is not what it seems. 
    Although police aren't buying his murder theory, Jack joins forces with Patrick's daughter and investigates anyway, taking a sometimes less than lawful dive into the newspaperman's past. Together they discover plenty of Byron locals with a motive to kill, including a bioholistic dentist with a secret, a naturist with an undisguised grudge, and even the mayor of Northern Rivers Shire. But has Jack bitten off more than he can chew? 
    Immensely entertaining, The Beacon is a murder mystery with a difference, bursting with humour, local colour, memorable characters and page-turning action. 
    'Set in Byron Bay, this beachside mystery is a fun-filled page-turner that kept me guessing, and smiling, the whole way through. A rip-roaring yarn with a satisfying plot and likeable characters, The Beacon is the perfect summer read.' – PATRICIA WOLF, author of Outback and Paradise
